What can I say?

It’s one of those songs that stays in your head awhile (at least for me). Found via sound designer and producer Dean Hurley’s portfolio, Dream Wave by Tiny Ruins (originally a solo project of the song’s author, Hollie Fullbrook). A sweet, dreamy song in my opinion…
I’ve been assisting John Philpin in optimizing the site and noticed several author profiles with missing avatars. I believe I’ve identified the reason and a workaround but before implementing a solution, I have two questions for each of you. My questions are at the end of this post.
If you want to reply by comment, a simple ‘yes’ or no to each question is I need. If you prefer you may contact me privately.
- Do you have a Gravatar profile? (just say ‘no’ if not sure)
- If your avatar is one of the missing ones, do you want your own custom avatar to appear on your Just Good Music profile?
I’ve decided to share something I composed and recorded back in 1997 using my old Tascam Porta Two 4-track deck – all very analog using cassettes (remember those?)
Anyway, hoping you might enjoy it. Thanks for listening.
Those who come to China for a week write a book.
Those who come for a year write an article.
Those who come for a lifetime don’t write a thing.
But those who come for 8 years drop an auspicious rap album about the place.
When David Bowie died just a few days after his Blackstar album was released, I listened to the song Lazarus from the album. “Everybody knows me now” – profound! What I learned from all of this changed my outlook on life forever – from that point forward, you can just color me inspired.
Originally, we weren’t planning on going. We were always too busy to do much of anything anymore, or, at least, it seemed that way. Brushing off the daily grind to have some fun enjoying what you really like to do seems so difficult at times, but some things remind you how important it is to hold on to the good stuff. Something inside told me that we should do it – make the time and go!
So, I thought I was just going to a Clapton concert. I had never seen him and this was my chance. I started playing guitar in college and Clapton was one of my earliest inspirations. I’ve always had this thing for the blues and he played it so well. We did go, excited on the way that we were gonna see the man. As it turned out, Clapton was just a part of the experience that affected me so.
